Pongphen Guesthouse RULES!
Really enjoyed it. Obviously a family-owned guesthouse. Room was clean and well-appointed. Had no idea what to expect, and we really liked the open feel of the outside lobby/restaurant area. The taxi driver drove us an hour to Erawan Falls, waited 3 hours for us, and then drove us back. When I gave him a tip, he was thoroughly grateful and surprised. The bathrooms are basically showers, but it works well. However, remember to remove the bath tissue before you shower or it will get drenched. Staff was very helpful, and the menu for all meals is HUGE! Breakfast was fantastic! Get the pineapple juice!

Only one complaint
This is our second stay here. The only complaint is there are no draws in the room only a open wardrobe no doors or shelves meaning sometimes your clothes have to stay in your case
